The University of Kent has established up to 100 doctoral scholarships to be awarded annually. Successful candidates will demonstrate academic excellence and outstanding research potential.
Scholarships will be offered at the standard UK Research Councils’ rate and administered under the Graduate Teaching Assistant Scheme (GTA) which is designed for students seeking to gain teaching experience alongside their studies.
Kent, a research-led university, provides a vibrant and challenging academic environment informed by an international perspective and collaboration with top-ranked universities around the world. Our global partnerships provide the foundation for our international approach to research and teaching. In the most recent REF (2014) Kent was judged to have world-leading research in all subjects submitted and was ranked 17th in the UK for research intensity.
Kent has 21 academic schools as well as a wide variety of centres covering research in the arts and humanities, social sciences, medical studies, and science and technology. Find out more about Kent’s research and potential supervisors.
We offer postgraduate research at our locations in Canterbury, Medway and Brussels.
